As part of Glasgow International 2014, artist Carol Rhodes and AICA member Merlin James have curated an exhibition of the work of Christina Ramberg.

Christina Ramberg (1946-1995) was a central figure in the Chicago Imagist
movement, and in first-wave feminist art in the USA. Beyond those contexts
her unique work has emerged as increasingly compelling on its own terms, and
highly relevant to artists now. This exhibition is the first showing of Ramberg in
the UK since her substantial inclusion in the exhibition Who Chicago, curated
by Victor Musgrave thirty-five years ago (touring to Glasgow\’s Third Eye
Centre in 1980). Ramberg is best known for imagery of bound, fetishised hands
and bodies, and for schematised torsos that can shade into \’pure\’ diagrammatic
abstraction.
